So Sony says 1 million PS3 sold over last 3 weeks. VGC says it is 1.1 million. I understand that is because VGC claims they track PS3 fatty as well. I understand that, but honestly have 100,000 fatties sold over the last 3 weeks. If so why?

Because 100,000 people like the fatties more than the skinnies?



Smash Bros: 2363-5325-6342 


Over 600k first week.
Over 300k second week.
Over 250k third week.

Which means, 1.15-1.2 mln. in 3 weeks. Great PS3 slim sales.


I wonder, if PS3 will be able to sustain 250k+ sales for the rest of year.
Japan did pretty well with 50k+ sales for 3rd week. :)



amazingly it is still down YOY YTD...



I'm not really here!

Hm...60,000 ahead of Wii this week...30m behind lifetime

30,000,000/60,000

Yeah, if PS3 outsells Wii by this amount for the next 500 weeks then its the greatest comeback ever. I don't think we're going to see Wii drop below 275,000/week after the price drop. So except for the possibility of FFXIII week in Japan the order should be the DS > Wii > PS3 > 360 > PSP > PS2 for the rest of the year, although not entirely sure where to place the Go yet.

I do think there is a pretty good chance PS3 will outsell X360 each worldwide for the rest of 2009.

Keep your eye on whatever Wii does in October - when PS3 had its first price drop in early Oct 2007 it quadrupled from Oct to Nov in North America. That kind of jump is pretty likely with Wii at $200 for the first time.

 

My point is that its a HUGE comeback from where the console was 6 months ago & what its image was in general within the industry & people's minds.

A Comeback from the depths of hell itself.

interesting wii prediction BTW

Please this is not a comeback at all. This is just a price cut / new model. If the PS3 is constantly outselling the Wii for the next 12 months then you can talk about a comeback.

p.s. Will you start a thread when PS3 will return to its normal sales?

don't light your cigar up just yet...



@--OkeyDokey--

"Somehow I think being in third place has made the PS3 a better console than it would have been. Sony's first party is phenomenal this gen. Maybe even better than Nintendo's."

I would have to agree!



Playing and finishing games first>>>>>>>>>>Then talking!

Opinions are subjective and just like moods, can change.

yes, ofcourse I will.

I started a thread last year when PS3 was outsold by xbox 360 in EU massively& about killzone 2's disappointing sales

Such opportunity's cannot be missed Atma

@Kowenicki

then why did the xbox 360's price cut to $199 not see such an effect last year.....its initial effect wasn't impressive.

& its not amazing its down YTD, especially as you reminded us of that with your charts every 2 weeks throughout the last 7 - 8 months.

7 - 8 months of being down YOY can't be erased by 3 weeks up YOY.....it will be erased but not so quickly

whats more amazing is that the PS3 slim led to PS3 outselling Xbox 360's 2009 YTD in 2 weeks flat



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

so ok, now 360 is not in the competition as always has been now PS3 is competing against Wii the first place!! that's good news :D , now some Wii games will be multiplat too on the PS3.
